For award winning local jewellery designer and goldsmith Julie Mancini, jewellery making has been a growing passion since a young child. She has garnered work experience locally and abroad for high end jewellery brands through applying her commendable design skill along with her talent for materialising design concepts. By combining traditional gold-smithing techniques along with cutting edge technology and by sourcing exquisite ethically mined gemstones she creates inimitably unique jewellery pieces. Her focus is delivering a service to her clients globally that is not only trustworthy and professional, but truly personal.
“People always ask me: what inspires you as a designer?
Life. Life inspires me. There is beauty in everything. I fashioned my first crown out of tinfoil at the age of five and haven’t stopped since. I combine my love for photography by capturing my inspiration daily. Anything from the reflective light of antique chandeliers, the colours of dark chocolate and cognac, the lustre of pearls, the texture of stingrays, to the intricacy of eastern patterns and delicate lace etc. You can browse my library and follow my inspirational references on Instagram here or have a peek at my portofolio here.
Drawing from the beauty of daily life allows me to create pieces that are anti-trend and possess a sense of purpose and classic longevity, crafted meticulously to produce quality heirloom style pieces that are unique to the wearer. My gratitude for being a part of this process is what fuels my blow torch. And that’s pure joy.”
